Here's a little more info from CNN about Harvey's resignation.


www.cnn.com...
Troops recuperating from wounds they suffered in Iraq and Afghanistan were discovered to be living in substandard conditions in Building 18, an adjunct structure at Walter Reed that was once a hotel. There also were complaints of too much bureaucratic red tape.

Weightman, the fired commander, had said he was unaware of the substandard conditions.

But in a memo signed by a deputy to Weightman in September 2006, five months before reports of the problems at Walter Reed came to light, concerns were raised about care at the facility after the Army's decision to privatize support services there.
